Thanks so much for all the comments. Glad you appreciate this beautiful creature. The two words that came to mind as I photographed this eagle were "magnificant" and "majestic"! Sam, I am also a sport skydiver but have made only 800+ jumps. I have made three jumps from 30,000' "where the jets fly" which is quite an neat experience. I am working to make at least one skydive in every state and have 27 so far.

Great closeup of this majestic American symbol. I graduated in nearby Harrisburg, use to skydive a little mixed in with earlier flying days, crew chief on F-4Ds in Vietnam. Thanks for sharing.....Sam.

About 2620

I live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a beautiful part of the United States with scenic ancient mountains, beaches, bays, woods, and rivers all within a day's drive or flight. The Appalachians are not as high and rugged as other younger ranges, but they hold their own stark beauty. Many of my photos were taken while traveling. Thanks to all WunderPhoto viewers who send email -- I love to hear from you! Be safe...help people. GO SKYDIVING FOR FUN AND EXCITEMENT!!
